is whether that will change after the massacre at sandy hook elementary. andrea mitchell, nbc news, washington. >>> there is breaking news in the air tonight. and it's bad news for boeing. after a slew of problems, the faa has ordered all the new 787 dreamliners grounded for the time being. tom costello covers aviation for us. he's in our washington newsroom tonight with this still-developing story. tom, good evening. >> reporter: hi, brian. this action essentially ground all 787s around the world, because other governments generally follow the faa's lead. the faa's emergency air-worthiness directive says before any other 787 can fly, the operator on the boeing must prove the batteries are safe. >>> on the runway in western japan, an evacuation after the captain of a 787 got a warning light and thought he smelled something burning. the incident comes just a week after the fire in the belly of another 787 in boston. now investigators are taking a hard look at the 787's electrical system and lithium batteries. >> we've had two incidents involving batteries, involving charging circuit
with 64 votes. we passed the hurricane sandy emergency relief bill also in bipartisan fashion, with 62 votes. we had open debate, we had discussions, we had amendments, and we passed legislation. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway constr
at sandy hook elementary school. 20 -- 20 beautiful first graders gunned down in a place that's supposed to be their second sanctuary. six -- six members of the staff killed trying to save those children. it's literally been hard for the nation to comprehend, hard for the nation to fathom. and i know for the families who are here, time is not measured in days but it's measured in minutes, in seconds since you received that news. another minute without your daughter, another minute without your son, another minute without your wife, another minute without your mom. i want to personally thank chris and lynn mcdonald who lost a beautiful daughter, grace, and the other parents who i had a chance to speak to, for their suggestions and for, again, just for their -- the courage of all of you to be here today. i admire -- i admire the grace and the resolve that you all are showing. i must say i have been deeply affected by your faith as well. and the president and i are going to do everything we can to try to match the resolve you've demonstrated. no one can know for certain if this senseless ac

because it's so large. a smaller school like a sandy hook, it's smaller, it's easier to lock down. this sort of situation, there's so much space to be covered. >> well, and i think that's the challenges on any college campus. it's not like a grade school where you have one door in and one door out and you can buzz people through a door. here you have thousands of students and faculty members and guests that can come in and out and a number of different ways, number of different vehicles. texas has a right to carry law. you can carry a concealed weapon even though you can't carry it on campus but let me ask you this. let's say the college had 10,000, 15,000 people on campus today. how do you screen 15,000 people for the presence of a firearm? >> right. >> we can do that at an airport. we can do it at a federal building in washington, d.c. as we have people come in but on a college campus almost impossible to do and one wanders how many people carry legally or otherwise a concealed weapon on college campus. realize my statistic in recent year, almost 1,500 incidents of firearm-relat
. that includes 7 cents a share of negative impact about a because of superstorm sandy, because of those recovery efforts. what was the estimate, joe? >> i mean, the number that they're -- that we're seeing reported by reuters are -- i don't know whether that's yearly or what, but they're taughting fourth quarter of 1.48. >> fourth quarter, 38 cents. >> i saw that, but -- >> even with the seven cents back in, the estimate was 50 cents. >> this must have a lot on other stuff in it. the one that is sitting on the wire. we're getting some news from the company itself. but yeah, there is a -- does that include did they sell something or have a big gain? they might have. what did you -- >> 38 is what they say, plus the 7 cents. >> that is still below. >> below what the street would have been looking for and -- >> i doubt if they're going miss by -- you know, as stable a company as verizon is -- >> although the company is saying they were positioning themselves for growth in 2013. the story is the verizon sees opportunities in the fourth quarter to improve profits for 2013 means they probably threw a l

this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and i said you should put shooting at the top of the list. we have been through aurora, the sikh temple, the oregon shopping mall, think about this, this is before we got to sandy hook. in newtown. we'd had a time of ab
of drought which people don't -- people underestimate droughts. drought probably cost more than sandy will in the long run because of the public sector. fewer games, and sandy is like, was a hurricane and then just whatever you want to call after that, that's a big debate. but we're talking about manhattan, want you to think about this. people are talking at sea level rise in inches, maybe a foot over decades. sandy produced storm surge of three to four meters, or over 12 feet, in one of the most densely populated areas in the united states. and everybody says, i didn't think this could happen. i'm like, well, i've got pictures in the '30s when they were flooding the subways back then. it just doesn't happen very frequently. we had -- all of their imaging equipment in the basement. it makes sense when you don't deal with storms every year, it's much easier to shield, it's isolated, and it's a great space putting that type of equipment. now if you're getting hurricanes every five or six years you wouldn't have built there. if you hadn't had a storm since the series of any magnitude, ma

. and nothing happened. and so when sandy hook happened, to me was-- it had to be a tipping point. you couldn't now have, after aurora, a few months before, 20 young children blown to pieces with three to 11 bullets each from the same weapon that had been used in aurora and not do something as a civilized humain society. and what brought it really to vogue for me, sandy hook, was it was almost identical to what happened in a school in scott rant in the mid-90s where a deranged man had taken guns spy school and killed 16 children. i never covered a more awful story in terms of the gut-wretching images of these poor parents sprinting to the school. i'm a father of four kids. like all parents, i drop my kids off at school and you hand them over and you expect to get them back. and it was just awful. and it was exactly the same, watching sandy hook pim turned on cnn and there were these parents racing to the school, the same terror in their faces. and i thought, this-- this doesn't look right. they were saying one person had been killed. parents don't react like that if they think that's what's h
